We've just returned from a great holiday in Vienna. There were Habsburg palaces full of baroque and rococco bling, many statues and monuments to imperial glory, a big wheel, crypts and catacombs, more bling in the imperial treasury, strange armour, many Christmas markets with roast chestnuts and Glühwein, horse-drawn carriages, snow, an awful lot of museums, Kaffee und Kuchen (including Sachertorte in Hotel Sacher), and several renditions of the Harry Lime theme (by a concert ensemble, by a guy playing the piano in a coffee house where Trotsky used to hang out, and on the audio guide in a museum of musical instruments for their zither).
